Back For You

They say friendship lasts forever. Louis Tomlinson and Lillian Brie thought that this statement was completely true. But when one "yes" from Simon Cowell changes their fate together they need to find their way back together. After years of solitude, Louis comes back to Doncaster for a visit. Just as he promised. Because when two people are meant to be, they will always find their way back.


7. Day 6 - Having Faith


I woke up completely unaware of my surroundings. I looked around anxiously, I saw white walls, white roof and a tile floor. The morning light shone in through the window illuminating Louis' face. I looked at it smiling, he looked so peaceful sleeping. But thats when I remembered what happened. I rubbed the sleep in my eyes before getting up and listening for his heart beat. There was a slow "beep....... beep....... beep....." coming from the monitor. But I could swear that it was getting slower and slower.

"You promised you wouldn't leave me..." I cried holding his hand. He usually felt so warm but now he felt like stone cold ice, "You're so cold. Don't leave me. Not now."

The doctor came in, he wore a tired expression and his features looked weary. 

"Oh you're awake miss!" he said, he was trying to sound vibrant but he was failing miserably. I could practically feel the bad news looming.

"Louis?" I asked, "What is his status?"

"It is quite uncertain," he began, "He seems as if he is in a coma of sorts but his vitals seem to be weakening. His future is uncertain."

"Is he going to die?" I asked under my breath,

"Well miss I couldn't be.-" he began but I cut him off,

"Is he going to die?" 

"Miss I wouldn't-" 

"Is he going to die?" I repeated myself sternly trying to get the message through,

"The chances are very high miss." that wasn't the answer that I wanted to hear. But I knew it was coming. 

I looked over to him holding his cheek in my hand, I brushed back his hair with my thumb and kissed his lips. There was a part of me that expected him to kiss me back but results were expected. No response.

The doctor left the room closing the door behind him, I was very grateful. 


I heard Lil calling out to me. I felt as if I was slowly being sucked into a black hole, being clawed at by the hands of death. But I would not let death win. Thats when I heard her voice, I reached out to it mentally but my physical state refused to budge.

"I'm so sorry Lou. For all the things that I might have said, for all the things that I might have thought. I'm so sorry for putting you in this state. If it wasn't for me we wouldn't have even been in the park, you might have not died. I don't know if you can hear me, maybe your coma is like the comas in movies. Where you can hear me? I know its doubtful. I seem pretty mad talking to you in this state. But I just wanted to let you know that I really do love you. All of those things that I said in the shower were true. Even though I've only recently come to terms with it I do think that I always loved you, from the very first moment that I saw you. I should've have probably told you this earlier but if you die. I don't know what I'm going to do."

I heard her start crying. I wanted to hug her, kiss her and whisper in her ear that everything was alright. But I couldn't.

"Because Lou, you have always been the one and I'm sitting here feeling like such an idiot. Because when I should have been supporting you in your fame, I pulled away and I'm so sorry. It's all my fault Lou. I know it is and the thing is, I'm suffering for it now."A

A phone started to ring somewhere in the distance but I locked onto Lil's voice listening intently. Her voice was the only thing keeping me in this world, the only thing holding me to reality.


"Hello?" I said through tears,

"Aww hello babe," I recognized that voice, it was Marley, "How you doing? I saw that Lou was in the hospital on the news."

"Yeah," I responded wiping away my tears, "I'm sitting by him right now."

"Are you ok love? Because I can come back early if you need it." 

Marley had the most wonderful Australian accent which put a smile on my face.

"No, just stay with your family. But really? Its broadcasting all the way in Australia?" I found it awfully strange.

"Well news is news dear. Our friend is quite a celebrity."

I heard Cherie on the other end of the phone babbling away in the background.

"Well here's Cherie!" Marley exclaimed handing the phone over.

"Just so you know we're already back home!" Cherie shouted throughout the phone, "Our cousins were getting sick of us anyways. Mum and Dad are staying down there so we might have to stay with you. Where are you staying? At Lou's? Well of course you're staying at Lou's. I saw some pictures! Marley and I decided to come home early way before this event and how lucky is it that they just coincided!"

Cherie talked for quite some time before finally blowing me a kiss and hanging up. I felt very excited, Marley and Cherie were back in town and I really needed their support. Thats when 4 boys burst through the door. One with curly brown hair and a cheeky smile, one with sleek black hair and a tan complexion, a blonde one who was holding a burrito and a bold one whom looked very serious. 

"You must be Lily!" the curly haired one exclaimed, "I'm Harry,"

He extended his hand and I shook it firmly. 

"Well don't be cracking any moves," the blonde one said through a mouth of burrito, "She's Louis' girl."

"Don't make such assumptions Niall!" the bold one said,

"There goes Liam, big Daddy Directioner!" the black haired one said.

"How is he?" Niall asked,

"Wait... who are you?" I questioned,

"We're one direction!" they said in perfect harmony, so this was Lou's band. They introduced themselves as Harry, Liam, Niall and Zayn.

"What happened with my Boo Bear?" Harry cooed walking up to his bedside, what was his deal?

"Car..." I mumbled,

"Don't worry 'bout it," Niall had a thick irish accent that made me giggle a little. 

"Will he be alright?" Liam asked

I didn't know how to answer him. They were obviously all very close, why else would they make the effort to visit him? They were all looking at me expectantly but when I tried to say something no noise came out. I was saved by Cherie who burst through the doors screaming.


Marley came in after her shutting the door nicely and walking to the bed.

"What happened to Lou?" Cherie asked completely ignoring One Directions presence. 

"Who are you?" Harry asked.

"Cherie Thompson." she said very matter of factly, "Call me whatever you want I don't care."

The boys, Cherie and Marley started conversing but I stayed by Lou holding his hand, praying that he would come through.

"Don't worry dear," Marley came up behind me giving me a big hug, "I'm sure he'll be alright."

I heard Marley's stomach rumble, this made me smile.

"How about you go down to the canteen and get some food. I'm sure you have had a very long journey"

Marley nodded her head and walked out of the room with Cherie. The boys also followed her out leaving me alone. I hadn't eaten since yesterday and I was starving. But the pull in my stomach wasn't strong enough to pull me from Lou. 


The boys from one direction were very cute. I really wanted to talk to one of them but I was much too shy. Cherie was busy chatting to Liam about god knows what. She was so confident, no matter how hard I tried I could never be that confident. Harry approached me at one point and said,

"I never caught your name love," this made my cheeks turn a bright shade of scarlet. 

"It's Marley," I managed to mumble out.

"You have quite interesting hair," he pointed out. I instantly felt embarassed. My hair was a really big mistake. I thought that bright blonde hair and pink tips might give me some confidence. Bold hair choice must equal from sort of confidence right?

"Yeah, it was a mistake." I mumbled,

"Well why did you bleach it in the first place?"

How did he know it was bleached? I guess it was pretty obvious. 

"Long story..." I said, my voice trailing off.

"Well how about you tell it to me over coffee?" he asked giving me a cheeky smile. I brushed my hair behind my ears smiling like an idiot.

"Sounds great," I responded, "But maybe some other time..."

I must have been an idiot for refusing Harry Styles but I knew two friends that needed me more at that time and place. I could see the hurt in Lily's eyes, I could tell how much she loved him. She always had had a little crush on him, even though she refused to believe it.

I got some food quickly scoffing it down my throat. Everyone else was nowhere near finishing their food but I ran up to the room anyways. Just as I was about to walk into the room I heard Lil's sobbing. I peered in through the crack in the door. She was lying next to Louis now and holding him. A tear streamed down my face, I felt so bad for her. Her pain legitimately hurt me. 

I listened to the monitor. It didn't sound good, the beeps were slow, very slow. And they were slowing down.


I started counting the seconds between his heartbeat.

"Beep" 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13 "Beep" 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20 "Beep"

It was slowing way too quickly. The guys hadn't gotten back from lunch yet and neither had the girls. I didn't have time to wonder though, I just lay there continuing to count.

1, 2, 3 .... 24 "Beep" 

I was starting to get very worried about him so I screamed down the hall.

"Doctor! Doctor!" 

A doctor and a couple of nurses came into the room. They started clicking away at some machines as I continued to hold Lou's hand. They then started mumbling something very quietly. I tried to listen to their conversation but nothing seemed to work. They looked at me a couple times and said through their ear piece,

"The girl has to leave the room. Can someone escort her?"

My eyes widened in shock, how dare they.

"I'm not leaving him." I said strictly, I refused to leave his side. 

"Miss we do not think it would be in your interest to stay here," the doctor responded furiously writing something down on a clipboard.

"I'm not leaving him." I repeated myself holding the bed.

Two big men came into the room, they were there to take me out. 

"I'M NOT LEAVING HIM!" I shouted as they picked me up.

I started flinging my arms and legs around refusing to leave him. But thats when I heard a comforting beeping. Lou's heart rate was picking up. 

"He's alive," I breathed, "He's alive..." 

I kicked the guy that was holding me in the lower region and ran to his bedside. I cupped his face in my hands and tapped him on the face lightly. His eyes slowly opened and he blinked a couple times before screaming. He was trying to wiggle out of my grip.

"Lou you're alive! Don't worry! It's me!" I kept hold of his face but he had a scared look on his face, almost like he didn't know who I was...

"Who are you?" he screamed, 

My heart broke in half. My body went limp as I fell to the floor, the two security guards picked me up. I was thrown over someones shoulder and was taken out of the room. The one direction guys, Cherie and Marley walked down the hallway looking very worried. Cherie started shaking me and Marley tried talking to me but I was swallowed up in my own sadness. He didn't know who I was. He didn't know who I was. He left me.

The door to Louis' room opened. I looked up to see the doctor with a very solemn look on his face.

"The bad news is that Mr Tomlinson has come down with a severe case of amnesia. He damaged himself terribly and will have to be put into a cast." 

"And the good news?" Zayn asked,

"All of the damage isn't permanent, he can regain his memory and his bones shall heal,"

"How do we make him regain his memory?" Marley said, I noticed that she was particularly close to harry gripping onto his arm. 

"Just spend alot of time with him. Jog his memory by showing him pictures, things like that dear."

"Can we see him?" Niall asked,

"Yes but don't overwhelm him." the Doctor then walked away down the hall.

I held the door open for everyone, once everyone was inside I took a deep breath and walked into the room, ready to face a whole new realm of sadness. 


I felt very confused, my head hurt and I had been put into a full body cast. They told me that my name was "Louis William Tomlinson." They also told me about my sisters, my mother. I was also told that I was in a famous boy band named One Direction. This band consisted of me and four other members. Harry Styles, Liam Payne, Zayn Malik and Niall Horan. I was also told that two of my friends were here, Cherie and Marley I think? Apparently I had girlfriend, Lily Brie I think it was. 

The door opened and through it came 4 boys. The boys in my boy band I suspected. Two girls walked in, they looked identical. Apart from their hair color. Was I seeing double? Then another girl walked in. She was beautiful and I mean beautiful. I hoped that she was Lily, because if she was, well done me. 

"Hello everybody!" I said, I thought that I sounded pretty cheery even though I ached all over. 

They all introduced themselves to me. The girl was Lily. The boys were very talkative, I liked them. They made me laugh alot, same with Cherie and Marley. The girl called Lily didn't talk though. She just sat there looking at me.

"So Lily, apparently we're a couple eh?" I asked, I found myself with a smug little look on my face. 

She continued looking at me. Her eyes started to tear up but she wiped them away quickly. Why was this girl so sad? Did I hurt her? I hope that I didn't, she seemed so innocent. Marley interupted my thoughts by answering my question,

"Yes. You guys are very much in love." 

The girl smiled at me giving me a little wave. I acknowledged her by smiling and giving her a wink. 

I really liked the guys, I understood why they were my best friends. And the girls, they seemed really funny and nice. That Lily girl was awfully quiet though, she wouldn't wipe the sad face off of her face no matter what was said. But the stories that were told were familiar. I found that Lily was in most of them. In the ones that she was absent from the band was present. Was that supposed to mean something? Did she not get along well with them? At one point they got to showing pictures. Apparently there was alot of media coverage around Lily and I because there were many, many pictures that were from the media. We looked very happy together, Lily had a beautiful smile. I wish that I could see it in person. 

All of us, apart from Lily, talked for hours until visiting hours were over. All of them left quickly but the Lily girl hung back a little bit.

"Do you really not remember me?" she whimpered in the softest voice, 

I badly wanted to say yes, there was a part of me that hated seeing her like this. Tear-stained cheeks, shaken voice, puffy eyes. But I couldn't remember her.

"I'm sorry love," I answered,

"No. No need to be sorry." she said through her tears she turned her back to me, "It's not your fault."

she walked out of the room silently shutting the door. I tried to turn around and bury my face in my pillow but I couldn't move. 

I felt so confused. Who was I? Was anything certain? 


Spending time with Louis was fun! Though he didn't remember who we were I could tell that he liked us. There was a certain twinkle in his eye that popped up every time he laughed, he was truly enjoying himself. I really liked that Cherie girl, she was... different. Very fun. 

I expected Lily to be different though. At the beginning of our X-Factor days he wouldn't shut up about her. We knew almost everything about her, all of their stories. She might have been beautiful, as we were told countless times by Louis, but she wasn't very talky. Ever since we received Lou's unfortunate news I hadn't heard her speak. We hired a taxi to drive us back to the park. All of the boys were talking about something to do with food. I was talking to Cherie about her family in Australia. She had told me all about them, they really were a funny bunch. Marley and Harry were talking about god knows what. They were cuddled up in the corner of the taxi together looking adorable. 

"Hey Lily, how did you and Lou meet?" I asked trying to start conversation, 

She remained silent, she looked back to Cherie and they must have had some mental conversation because Cherie spoke for her.

"They met when they were 8, Lou's mum and Lil's mum met at a yoga class. They were meeting up and they thought it would be a good idea to bring the children along. Lou and Lil clicked, their mums were great friends, so they were always together."

"That's nice Lil, when did you realise that you liked him?" 

I could swear that everything in the world went silent. All of the boys, the girls were quiet, waiting for Lily's response. She took a deep breath in, speaking for the first time.

"I think... I think that I always did. Like him. I always knew it. I just didn't come to, I just didn't come to terms with it until recently. He was always, he is the one and in my heart, I think it would kill me inside if he didn't ever remember me because honestly, I thought that I would make a bigger impact on his life. That all of us would make a bigger impact on his life but apparently none of us did! So fantastic!" 

She clapped her hands together returning to her silence. It was really dark outside so when we pulled up at the park we all went into Lou's car and drove back home. Harry and Marley sat in the front seat whereas the rest of us sat smooshed up in the back. Lily didn't speak for the rest of the night, once we parked she ran inside and upstairs, locking herself in her bedroom. The boys and I already dropped our things off, same with Cherie and Marley so we all stayed in. 

"You girls can take the guest room," Niall said gesturing them towards it, "We'll take the girls room." 

The girls smiled their thankyous and headed upstairs whereas we headed to Lou's sisters room. We unpacked our things stuffing our clothes into the cupboards.

"So Harry," Zayn said stuffing his underwear into a random drawer, "You fancy Marley?"

"She's a lovely girl," Harry said obviously blushing, "What about you and Cherie, Liam?" 

"Aw shuttup!" I threw a pillow in his direction, he caught it smacking it down on the bed. Thankfully, he went under the covers before stripping down. 

"You're gross 'Arry," Niall said laughing and crawling under his own covers. 

I claimed the last bed leaving Zayn looking really distressed. Zayn took a pillow and a quilt and lay on the couch in the girls room.

"You comfy mate?" I asked

"Don't start with me!" he responded stuffing his face in the pillow,

Harry just lay in bed, thinking I suppose.

"Guys, what about Louis?" he muttered, we all sighed. Our friend was really damaged and we were worried. 

"Just have faith," I said turning around so that I was facing him. 

We all closed our eyes falling asleep very quickly.
